- Wedding: May 2012
I’m planning an elopement for next month and have a crazy tight budget of $200ish. FH is paying for everything else and he wants his uncle to photograph our wedding but I don’t think it’s fair to have him at our “wedding” and not his mother since it’s his mother’s brother and they live together. (we’re eloping b/c my family is in wi and can’t come down and his family can’t go to wi so we’re eloping and celebrating with each family) Plus, I have never seen his uncle’s work and feel like I have to be a “lady” around him since we don’t know each other too well. So the agreement was it was either him or I pay for a photographer. I stay at home while fh works so I have to use my $ that I’m getting back from state taxes which is only $390 and I don’t want to spend it all on photography. I narrowed it down to 3 but am needing your expert eye to pick out things I looked over. Thank you!!
#1 For Keeps Photography
Nice website but not updated facebook and only 1 review on weddingwire.com plus for 1 hr it’s $281.45
#2 Le Zu Photography
Website, facebook, and blog is very up to date and has 2 reviews on weddingwire.com for 1 hr it’s $189 but she pushed for 2 hours and I can’t pay $378 when I explained she understood
#3 Purple Kite Photography
Facebook doesn’t have a lot of photos but seems up to date. Found her off of craigslist, no reviews and she’s plus size(I’m also plus size so I feel more comfortable). For 2 hours it would be $220.
